Excerpt: The Canon Elura 100 represents the entire middle-of-the-road Elura line, squarely between the bargain-priced ZR models and the higher-end Opturas. Last year there were three Elura camcorders. This year, Canon seems to believe that the Elura 100 ($399 MSRP) can fill the gap alone. We agree.
Pros: -Mic-in port, -Analog to digital pass-through, -Top loading tape compartment, -True wide screen format
